    Required visit for anyone interested in learning about the Jewish People or specifically the Holocaust.
    Even if you visited years ago, the newer curated exhibits are much more accessible than the old museum.

    We participated in a guided tour (free of charge) of the site which was interesting. Our guide was pleasant and patient, very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions to the best of his ability. The view from the wall surrounding the citadel, both towards the old city and the Mount of Olives and towards the western city, is spectacular. But, the floor in the women's restroom was filthy and remained so even after two hours, even though I called the attention of the receptionist at the entrance to the site and noticed that she called a cleaning worker. It is not enough to call, you also need to make sure that the task is carried out.

    Such a great time. We did this 13 years ago, so it was nice to come back with our kids and see them enjoy the discovery process. The staff are so helpful and knowledgeable, and do a great job interpreting and contextualizing the finds.

    The owners were such a pleasure to work with. Their store is well organized and filled with so many unique treasures. They made my dreams come true today when I found a widows mite pendant in silver which was what I fell in love with at a different store earlier that day. They gave me an affordable and fair price. Both gentle men were a pleasure to work with. Both are photoed here with my husband. Thanks guys!

    A beautiful shop hidden in the old city, with excellent customer service. Contains a large selection of art for all price ranges.

    Small, informative, and well presented without too many modern gizmos. A useful place to visit. We were escorted by a knowlegeable, English-speaking guide with pleasant manner.

    Good collection, well thought out and arranged chronologically. It's a nice complement to the Israel Museum nearby.

    This shop is unique to the Old City. Omar’s mosaics does beautiful work with precision detail and artistry. My order was shipped from his shop to my home in the US and was packed with care. I highly recommend visiting Omar Mosaics when you are in the Old City of Jerusalem!

    Firstly, if you are coming by light rail, use the exact address to get to the entrance. If not, you’ll end up at the locked back gate or a very large bus depot!
    On arrival, people were helpful and explained what to look at using the very good audio. The museum is cleverly laid out with personal stories and lots of detail - very well presented. Overall, an excellent visit and very well worth the time.

    The Shrine of the Book houses the Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient texts. The Shrine of the Book, adjoining the Israel Museum, is constantly dowsed with water. The Scrolls are on display for three months at a time, to prevent light damage. Unfortunately, many visitors ignore the request not to use flashes, which can harm he scrolls.

    Some how, in my all my time spent in Jerusalem, I missed this museum. SHAME on me! Do not let this happen to you. This really is worth making an effort to experience. One of the best museum on Islam I have been to (and I have been to many). Completely unexpected to find on the Western side of Jerusalem.

    Was so nice to see so many school children in the museum. Museum was full and it should be. Please find the time to visit.

    Small but wonderful. Full of rare objects from the late 15th century onwards…

    Really emotional experience.
